New Summer Program at NJIT Helps High Schoolers Build Connections to Real-World Projects

Lisa Simone, PhD, an assistant research professor in the department of biomedical engineering, works with high school students enrolled in the Connections Program, which debuted at NJIT this summer. Through the CCS Capstone Open University Connections Program, high school students work in small project teams to solve real world problems based on scenarios drawn from actual industry cases in a broad array of fields, including health, communications, sports, and entertainment. Founded by Osama Eljabiri, lecturer and director of CCS capstone courses at NJIT, the program is focused on building a shared peer-to-peer education network that offers unique learning experiences.
